This module is for the MATBC students only

In this second module, the skills of inductive Bible study are further developed exploring Luke's Gospel, and Luke's second work The Book of Acts.  As you will discover, both of these  books were written to predominantly Gentile audiences and with the previous module provide a foundation for the study of the rest of the New Testament.  You will be introduced to two more genres of Biblical literature, the Gospel and New Testament narrative.

2 U of N Extension Studies Credits.


LukeThe Gospel of Luke, one of the two books written by a Gentile, is a rich complement to the previous Gospel you have studied. You will discover how Luke relates his Gospel story to the unfolding purposes of God throughout history, and in so doing you will continue to develop your skills in understanding how to read and study such a Gospel.  You will identify those features that make this beautiful Gospel unique, and reflect on the current implications of these.


ActsDr. Luke continues his story in this book, the value of which cannot be overestimated.  Apart from gaining an understanding of the infant Church and early church history, you discover the careful emphasis employed by Luke which he presents in his work.  You become familiar with the pertinent geography for your continuing studies in the New Testament letters, which you will find are foundational.  You also consider the methods and models used by these early followers of Jesus as they obeyed the great Commission of Jesus in Matt 28, and then consider the implications of these for our universal missionary task.
